Listen to Bronswick and other great artists on exclusive Spotify playlists.
The story of Bronswick begins in the summer of 2014, when Bertrand Pouyet crosses paths with Catherine Coutu while searching for a vocalist who could bring soul to his compositions.
After a few experiments, Bertrand falls under the spell of Catherine’s charm and sensibility, qualities that lend a breath of fresh air to the project.
Listening to Bronswick will no doubt evokes 80s franco influences such as Étienne Daho and Mylène Farmer, but the duo also channels the dark, mysterious energy of contemporary acts such as The Knife or The xx. This influence is heard on their first EP, Errances.
After a notable performance at the M Pour Montréal festival, the duo launches their second EP, Chassés-Croisés (nominated for a GAMIQ prize), in early 2016. Acclaimed by several influential blogs (Exclaim!, Silent Shout, IX Daily) it’s first single to the top of the prestigious CBC Radio 3 chart, in addition of being mentioned as SOCAN’s Single Of The Week.
Bronswick celebrates the end of a successful year with the release of the EP Comme La Mer Remix, an album for which the duo enrols Robert Robert, French Fox and Lafayette .
Bronswick is currently working on a first full-length album, to be released in the fall of 2018.
